Okyenhene Not Demanding GHC 5m – The Herald’s Editor

The Managing Editor of the Herald Newspaper, Larry Alan Dogbe, has denied that the Okyenhene is demanding Ghc5 million as damages from the newspaper for publishing falsehood about him. “…There is nowhere in this document is Okyenhene demanding Ghc5 million from the publishers of the Herald,” he said on Eyewitness News. The Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin, has filed a suit at the Fast Track High Court against the publishers of The Herald newspaper and three others for accusing him of engaging in illegal mining. They are Prime Mark Company Limited, publishers of The Herald newspaper, Nana Kwame Adjei-Boateng, a member of the Asona Royal family, Larry Alan Dogbe, the Managing Editor of The Herald and Kofi Nyame, a reporter with the newspaper. Mr. Dogbe in response acknowledged that he, together with his colleagues have been served by one Kwame Acheampong Boateng. He indicated that he will act according to the advice of his lawyer, David Annan. “I believe I am in the hands of a very competent lawyer in the person of David Annan and when the issues go to court, whatever legal arguments that will be advanced, I believe in the competence of David Annan,” he said.
